Hi, my son received his first detention yesterday. He dropped the "f bomb" as an answer to a math question. At the time it was anger directed toward his Dad. Dad saw it and said he would get in trouble at school if he left it there. Hence the detention. He apologized to the teacher. He has no consequences at home for this except a talking-to. Although we have said no sleepovers for a while because of this horrible negative attitude. How many of you would have given consequences at home as well? I am so sad that I have such a disrespectful son. He had this amazingly wonderful start to the school year (7th grade) and he is just spiraling downward quickly. His swearing is out of control, he hates school, doesn't care, a battle to do his homework. Blah, blah, blah...we are so discouraged... Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. We don't think he's doing drugs, neither does his therapist. I'm worried about this though. Thanks.
